Ah no thanks to a call

Was just wondering if there are any red flags we should watch out for with regards to a low appetite

it could be acid reflux

is he losing weight?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
No but he isn't gaining weight as much he perhaps should given his growth in length. It doesn't seem like he is distressed when drinking milk or after drinking milk. He had colic before but it passed quickly. He just doesn't seem very interested in feeding.

I would look into zantac for acid reflux

I bet that helps
